Chinese climbers carried the Olympic flame to the summit of Mount Everest on Thursday morning, marking the high point of the torch relay.

The 12-member team, chosen from a pool of 31 climbers, was led by Tibetan Nima Ciren and backed up by a team of seven further mountaineers.

Ethnic Tibetan climber Norbu Zhamdu lit the torch at four meters short of the 8,848-metre peak.
